I use a template to rate all the project creators I consider backing, in lieu of any rating or review system available on Kickstarter. This forces me to think rationally about why I am backing these project creators, especially as my money is at risk.
The template considers six categories:
- Type of project creator
- Business evidence
- Previous Kickstarter experience
- Risks and Challenges
Here is the project tracker I used: Kickstarter Project Tracker
